Vicky Isley & Paul Smith (aka boredomresearch) enthusiasm for scientific modelling techniques and fascination with natural systems has inspired them to develop computational artworks over the last six years that explore the aesthetics of emergence, computational abstractions, artificial life and belief systems.
In this paper boredomresearch discuss three computational artworks - Biomes, RandomSeed and Ornamental Bug Garden 001 which were shown in Theatre of Restless Automata and other preparatory works which commenced their research into artificial life and digital biology.
